The Broome Cricket Association competition has reached its peak with the Mangrove Cricket Club securing its spot in next week’s A-grade grand final.

Mangrove claimed their ticket to the grand final after defeating Roebuck Bay in the A-grade semifinal at Nipper Roe Oval on Saturday, November 18.

Tom Chapman was the best batter for Mangrove hitting 53 runs including two sixes, while Ryley Alexander was the best batter for Roebuck Bay with 30 runs.

Despite the Roebuck Bay bowlers putting in their all and collecting an impressive nine wickets, it wasn’t enough to stop the Mangrove batters from winning the match, 3-169 to Roebuck Bay’s reply of 9-154.

In the B-grade semifinal, Roebuck Bay defeated the Dirty Dozen by 29 runs, 4-129 to 9-100.

Riley Oldfield was the best batter for Roebuck Bay with 47 runs while Matthew Blackley was the top batter for the Dirty Dozen scoring 34.

William Cameron also delivered a tremendous performance collecting four wickets for Roebuck Bay.

Despite the impressive performance from the Dirty Dozen bowlers collecting a total of nine wickets, the team’s batting performance let them down.

Mangrove will take on the Dirty Dozen at Nipper Roe Oval on November 25 in the Broome Cricket Association A-grade grand final while Mangrove will clash with Roebuck Bay in the B-grade grand final.
